Jazz-Allah Supreme!
I clock this Slipknot in at 13 minutes of pure bliss. This might be the definitive version from the 1976 June and July tours. The entire second set rips including a great Wheel, and a Crazy Fingers>Dancing in the Street>Cosmic Charlie Triple Dose to loosen the dancers up. The Help>Slip>Frankins is 25 minutes of Jazz-Allah as only this new Two-Drummer Heavy Septet could offer - loose yet relentlessly driving, passionate yet cooly detached and unhurried, inside a crystal clear recording. I love the 8.4.76 version, as well as 5.9.77, but this Beacon show has a quality all its own...

Looking for some other early period Jazz-Allah Help>Slipknots to feed my starving ears...

While not an early version, still a great version showing there could still be a spark in the later (berated) years. Also the last TLMD ever performed. Charlie board to boot.

You can never go wrong with 6/9/77, the best in my book.

One of the few shows in my slowly growing collection! When i was first starting out looking for shows with help/franklins this caught my ears.

One thing I LOVE is the sloooow tennesee jed. check it out.. It just craaawls. It's so funny to compare it to the first time they played it.

The "might as well" is exceptional as well. Keith is loud.

It was nice to finally be able to particiate in the forum!

^The help/frank from this version is explosive at the end. First matrix i ever thought was worth downloading.

Quite an eloquent review youve written there, that's outstanding work!

Not nearly as long, and they save the Franklins for bit later in the set. But 9/28/75 has always been one of my favorites...

Cliff, this GGP show has long been a favorite of mine, as much for the whole "Baby Being Born" banter as the great Help>Slipknot.

PS. I always found the Brent-Era versions to be too fast. Jerry would always start the tune way-up-tempo and then struggle to keep up with the verses. The slower versions like 8.4.76 have a groove that enables the vocals and harmonies to be sung correctly, in a proper spacing. Later, they just took it too fast.

This is an instance where the AUD recording clearly DESTROYS the soundboard recording. Listen to the clarity!!!
